#### Step 3: Generating an IEEE Xplore compliant PDF file

Prior to submitting the camera-ready PDF file, it must be validated by IEEE PDF eXpress to ensure that it is compliant with IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Thus, EDAS will only allow to upload a validated and certified file built by IEEE PDF eXpress.

• In case you are a new user, click on "New Users – Click here" and enter the Conference ID 50532X, your email address and choose a password. If you have used previously PDF eXpress you might reuse the same account you used for previous conferences;
• The WINCOM'20 IEEE conference ID: 50532X;
• Genrating an IEEE Xplore compliant PDF file:
• Option 1: You can generate a compliant PDF file from your source files (e.g. Latex, MS Word, etc.). For executing this option, you have to select “Create New Title”, introduce the title of the paper, and then upload the source files. Once the file is generated, download it. This will be the final manuscript file that you need to upload later on in EDAS;

Option 2: You can validate a PDF file generated using your prefeered tool. Please make sure that all the fonts are embedded and your file contains no bookmarks/links. To execute this option, click "Create New Title", add the title of the paper, and then upload your PDF file. Once the status of the file indicates "PDF Passed PDF check; PDF is IEEE Xplore compatible", download it from PDF eXpress. This will be the final manuscript file that you need to upload later on in EDAS.

In case you face any problem related to IEEE PDF eXpress, access the Publications Support Center for IEEE PDF eXpress. If you do not find an answer in the Find Answers tab, go to the Submit A Question tab. Your question will be forwarded to IEEE PDF Support and answered within 3 business days.
